Only for seekers

I got it only because it was directed by the B director Lambert Hillyer. A little film from Columbia pictures, pleasant but also a bit boring for some one like me. Talkative, it remains a mystery film, as thousands of them in the thirties and forties. Always on the same scheme. I endure this kind of stuff, but can make it. No one asks me to do so. And I know in advance what I will have to deal with. So, I won't argue further.

But, again, I repeat, nothing very unusual here.

Missing such a feature is like playing football without your accordion.

Lamber Hillyer is one of the most prolific directors of B pictures in the 30's and 40's.
